Description - Memoirs of an Unregulated Economist by George J. Stigler

In this witty and modest intellectual autobiography, George J. Stigler gives us a glimpse into the little-known world of economics and the people who study it. One of the most distinguished economists of the 20th century, Stigler was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1982 for his work on public regulation. He also helped found the Chicago School of economics, and many of his fellow Chicago luminaries appear in these pages, including Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Ronald Coase, and Gary Becker. Stigler's appreciation for such colleagues and his sense of excitement about economic ideas past and present make his "Memoirs" both highly entertaining and highly educational.
